To connect a 1&1 domain name to a Weebly site, some modifications are needed using the 1&1 control panel. 1&1’s support should be able to help you. To ask 1&1 for these changes you would need the following:

  1. Take this email example and copy it.
  2. Send the email to 1&1’s support. Make sure you provide them with all the needed information.

If you prefer to make those changes yourself, you can gather the needed information and then make the due modifications in 1&1’s system.

However, you can also transfer your domain name to Weebly if you’d prefer them to host it for you. Read more about this process in this article.

Please noteIt is advisable to have your domain name(s) & the email account(s) with the same provider — this may save you some time in the future.

Additional Information

Weebly lets you connect any external domain name if you purchase a Weebly premium plan. Unfortunately, this connection is not possible with the free Weebly plans.

No, this is not possible. Weebly doesn’t let you transfer domain names. The only solution would be to point your domain name to Weebly’s page. For this you can follow the previous instructions.

Domain names at Weebly can be relatively expensive; you would be looking at around $19.95 (per year). Additionally, their domain name extensions are limited to .org, .com and .net. Weebly paying plans offer a free domain name the first year.

1&1 is a cheaper option. You can have a domain name starting at $15 per year, and chances are they will offer a big discount for the first year. They not only offer .org, .net and .com, but they also offer many domain name extensions such as .co.nz, .fr, .co.uk and more.

To perform this connection you simply need to purchase a domain name without any extras at 1&1.

Weebly offers email account services through Google Workspace. No doubt this is a very high-end alternative, but its price is around $72 per user (each year).

1&1 offers one e-mail account for free when you purchase a domain name. If you need more accounts, you can take a look at 1&1’s email plans.

If you’d prefer a builder that offers an all-in-one package, you could consider having a look Webnode. Email account(s) and domain name(s) are included with all their paid plans.
